    ...To overlook the 60+ Trillion in unfunded liabilities, current 1.5T deficits and a lack of willingness on the part of anyone in Congress to make real spending cuts or touch entitlements, and simply blame the R's refusal to raise taxes is a little one-sided, isn't it?

    This downgrade was long overdue and only raising taxes on the top 5% wouldn't have been enough to scratch the surface on the current deficits, much less deal with the larger problems.
